Six Sigma Green Belt Training and Certification Program

Purdue MEP's Six Sigma Green Belts are trained in a subset of Black Belt tools and methodologies.

Green Belts assist Black Belts with major projects and can independently lead minor projects. At many companies, Green Belts have a part-time continuous improvement role. Participants will leave the training with a thorough understanding of the DMAIC process, data collection techniques, and the statistical methods used in Six Sigma projects.

Green Belts:

  • Provide Black Belts with another resource for project completion
  • Implement process improvement projects
  • Generate Six Sigma enthusiasm throughout the organization
  • Incorporate the Six Sigma method into all aspects of the business
  • Provide Six Sigma knowledge for Champions, Managers, etc., who may not be working on projects but need to know Six Sigma
  • Get buy-in from floor-level employees
  • Identify new sources of talent and high-potential employees

The Green Belt training is for employees at all levels of an organization.


Our Six Sigma Green Belt Program consists of a six-day curriculum.

Participants who complete all six days of training and pass the Green Belt Certificate Test will receive a Purdue MEP Six Sigma Green Belt certificate.

Participants who also submit evidence of meaningful contributions to a completed Six Sigma Project within 120 days of the completion of formal training will receive a Purdue MEP Green Belt certification.

Training is available onsite at your company or through a public workshop.
